We have just had a fireplace built, liner & a Clearview stove installed in an old chimney by Paul Heatley of Whitchurch 01948664118. He is on the HETAS site, very very impressed.
I found the chap on the Drayton road to be very good value, I only bought a bag of sticks but I noted that he will deliver 400kg bags of logs for £50 I think.
Well worth looking into.
Hi we had a log burning stove fitted two years ago and had a chimney liner fitted at that time. The guy calls himself the "Fire Placer Fixer" from Shavington. 07811 958 715. Couldn't fault his work.
Following a recent visit by a chimneysweep, we have been advised that we should have our chimney lined. Has anyone had their chimney lined by someone they would recommend? Ideally whoever undertakes the work should be HETAS registered (this is the Official body recognised by Government to undertake such work). Any recommendations would be welcome
Roger Millns the chair of ADCA might have some suggestions like shopping for old people or doing their garden etc. tel 811375 or e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
My mother has an old standard- lamp size shade which desperately needs recovering. She's reluctant to part with it as it is a good shape and size. Does anyone know any contacts re recovering please? Thank you!
My twin daughters ( aged 14 ) would like to do some charity work in the village for part of their Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, maybe an hour or two at weekends, for 3-6 months. Does anyone have any work they could offer or any contacts who may be able to help please ? Thanks in advance. 07976766332
Who might be interested in organising a joint event?
The gate to the canal on Bagley lane has got a new piece of binder twine to keep it shut! It made me think of the rhyme performed by Ray Smith (alias Boden) formerly of Hankelow who entertained the 'Thornton house' gathering some time ago. try this link to read the poem gibbinshatleykelpie.blogspot.com/2009/03/bit-o-binder-string.html
If anyone finds a large bunch of keys with a red postbox keyring on them please call 07917 018142, lost in the village about 4pm this afternoon somewhere between post office and lock 13.
So it costs the football club 400 per annum to have the field and have it mown and marked out? I'd say that was pretty good value for money as it stands.
I think today's thought is superb and everyone, particularly politicians, should heed it.
Thanks to the generosity of two families I now have several shelves of picked defect free apples which I hope will store through the winter. Then I have several bags of fallers which I can either stew and freeze or freeze as slices. If you have fallers which are bruised they can be turned into apple juice, ADAPT is planning an apple pressing session soon but if you are worried they will be going mouldy you can quarter them to check for grubs but leave peel, core, bruises etc and put in freezer then get out a day or two before the session.
I wholeheatedly agree with RW that the playing fields are Audlems & should be run by the village.
I do however, wonder what the token sum is. Cheshire Easts idea of a token sum may not align with Audlem P.C.'s although every effort should be made to ensure Audlem village acquires the playing field as it is an integral part of the village.We should not have to go cap in hand every time we wish to use this facility
Working on the assumption that teenagers are capable of learning for short periods of time without the direct presence of an adult.... Why is this a problem?
